Solar Flare quilt phase 1

Standard

I really loved the look of the solar flare quilt, shown on Tula Pinks update, I showed it to Mum & she brought it for me. I haven’t paper foundation paper pieced for a while. It was lovely to get back into it.

Yellow & pink block

This is the first set I made, I soon got back into the swing of folding, cutting & pressing.

Block 2
Blocks 2 & 3 together

So that’s the big square blocks done, on to the smaller ones

Block 4

These blocks are triangles, so together they make quite nice squares.

Blocks 5 &6

So with 4 of each block made, a large quantity of squares cut, 2 from each fabric & some borders cut.

It’s time to start thinking about construction. Time to grab a coffee & read though the next lot of instructions.

Luna Silk Shading progress

Standard

This is my 3rd piece for the Royal school of Needlework’s diploma in technical hand embroidery.

Unfortunately due to lockdowns & my health issues, this has been my longest running project on the course, so far.

She is finally starting to take shape. I recently finished her nose, although I still have the highlights to add.

Whitework embroidery

Standard

My Whitework embroidery is finally finished & handed in for assessment. My own design, from my research on traditional Scandinavian patterns. The design is a combination of pulled & drawn thread techniques.

All hemmed

Unfortunately, it became a lockdown casualty, being left cut & the hem started for over a year. I’m overall pleased with it.
